In collaboration with the Health Care Engineering Systems Center in the College of Engineering at Illinois, and the Jump Simulation and Education Center at OSF Healthcare in Peoria, Illinois, Jump ARCHES focuses on creating simulation and educational tools through imaging, health information technology, novel sensors and devices, and human factors engineering.

Jump ARCHES provides direct access and grants for engineers and clinicians of every discipline to work together, solving problems in the real world of health care. Further, through international partnerships, Jump ARCHES is also developing simulation-based educational tools to meet global health care challenges.
